All My Children News: Cady McClain Is A Busy Lady
Cady McClain, who is also known to the public as Dixie Martin, has kept herself busy since she left the soap “All My Children.” After spending 30 years on the sudser and with all the experience and support she received during her stay, she’s managed to pursue her lifelong dream. Before, she was portraying the character in a story that’s been written by someone else. Now, she gets to tell her own stories.
“In my very early days with Michael E. Knight (Tad) on the show, most of the writing was really wonderful,” she shared with Soaps In Depth. “But Mike had a very particular sense of humor and sensibility, so he and I would often attack the scripts and rewrite them.”
This made her realize that she wanted to be a part of the team who help give life to a story even though they are doing so behind the scenes.
